Astronomers detected evidence of extragalactic structure hidden behind the core of the Milky Way when looking from Earth. The region is known as a Zone of Avoidance and it’s largely unexplored due to dust and stars in our own galactic center. The structure consists of 5 galaxies analyzed in new scientific study and probably holds much more.
The European Space Agency released new data from its Gaia astrometric mission. The new data release (DR3) from the Gaia telescope will change once again our view of our own galaxy. Just like the previous releases, which revealed the history of galactic mergers, stellar positions and movements and so much more.
New research shows that the distribution of massive, medium and light stars vary greatly between close and distant galaxies. It looks like more distant galaxies tend to have more of the massive stars.
Astronomers recently weighed a young exoplanet orbiting star HD 114082. Together with its radius it allowed them to calculate its density, and it is too dense to be explained by current models.
